All the ly stuff. They are way too expensive for what they actually are. I'm going with the ly stuff, the Movie Collection ones that were offered in numerous paint jobs just to have different varying releases of the same mold.

Agreed. I actually don't dislike the hybrid grade super saiyan 3 ly piece [the one with long hair]... but I do dislike the movie collection stuff as it is all generic repaints of the same piece. At least the Bojack ones had different clothing and skin tones. The ly ones were just rather lame.
Aside from the fact that ly is my least favorite antagonist of the entire movie-universe of DB, Cell is my absolute least favorite antagonist of the entire canon-verse.
A friend of mine, also from argentina has recently bought here 3 rilldos for around the equivalent of u$s150 the lot i told him to create an account here, but he does not speak english at all :S. I leave you a pic from his.
Ik I can always look on ebay.. but how much are the gt line figures going for now a days... I'm also wondering if the jakks saiyan saga and arlian vegetas have kept their value after the figuarts releases.
damn, I'm still missing that sigma rilldo, but I think I'm going to make it custom version too expensive
I agree with Zarbon about Jakks ly being overrated, in addition I'd say that the 5" Bojack from jakks is overrated too, he is out of scale and the only thing I like about him is the head...
Yeah, another thing that's overrated and generally erroneous about almost all the Bojack pieces is that they feature him with the bandanna while showcasing him in his pumped up state when we know that he never was seen wearing his bandanna when portrayed with the green skin tone. He comes with the bandanna on most versions albeit the fact that he's not supposed to have it unless he's portrayed as a blue skin variant. The most accurate Bojack figure was this first large-scale release which I actually like; most others released by Jakks were very inaccurate in their depiction.
The rest were inaccurate as can be seen here depicted here; I've compiled them all for reference and noted which are erroneous by concept and execution:
My point is that I agree with PGV. Jakks Pacific did indeed re-release the same molds too many times as repaints and this was due to minimal actual new molds being made. This is why the first depiction of each mold was the best. The rest were almost always repaints, glossy variations, or just plain inaccurate depictions.
I think the scultures super saiyan 3 goku is overrated. He looks cool and all but it looks NOTHING like the cartoon or comic. That and the fact that its not to scale with anything. Its just plain overhyped imo. Looks badass, but dose not look like goku or a dragon ball figure at that.
Frieza's Revenge Vegeta and Alien Invaders Vegeta are the most overrated for me. They were cool before Figuarts came out simply because it was hard to find a decently scaled Vegeta w/Scouter, but I've always thought they were ugly as sin. He's got a total derp face that ruins the whole figure for me.
